Erdenfreuden und ihr Elend,
möchtet ihr dem Wandrer nach Salem
Staub unterm Fuße sein!
 
Kurze Freuden, leichtes Elend,
möchtet ihr dem Wandrer nach Salem
Staub unterm Fuße sein.
 
Möcht' ich, wie auf Adlers Flügeln,
hin zu euch, ihr Höhen, eilen,
ihr Höh'n der Herrlichkeit!
 
Mitgenossen jenes Erbes,
Mitempfänger meiner Krone,
meine Brüder, leitet mich!

Adapted from stanzas 15-16.

Trio (soprano, ténor et basse)
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Joies terrestres et chagrins,
Vous voudriez être à Salem
De la poussière sous les pieds du voyageur.

Joies brèves, doux chagrins,
Vous voudriez être à Salem
De la poussière sous les pieds du voyageur.

Je voudrais comme sur des ailes d'aigle
Me hâter vers la hauteur de ta gloire !

Vous qui profitez de cet héritage,
Vous qui recevez avec moi ma couronne,
Mes frères, conduisez-moi !
